Moving Denver Forward Within a National Movement

Since 2012, I’ve been a leader in a national network of progressive elected officials working in local government, known as Local Progress. Now more than ever, as Trump has attacked cities for our inclusivity, and turned the back of the federal government on affordable housing, climate, and infrastructure, cities are working together to fight back and step into the gap on advancing progress for the people we represent. With your support I can continue to rally other electeds across boundaries to keep doing this important work.

I’ve been honored to provide technical support on affordable housing to my counterparts in cities like Baltimore, Seattle, and Reno. And I’m proud to have served on a national advisory committee to create to help every city promote more access to affordable housing for their residents. 

At home I co-authored an article with a close network of electeds in the Metro Denver area who regularly exchange ideas on everything from more sustainable solid waste to transportation and interventions for those experiencing homelessness. And knowing the topics we were grappling with in Denver are not limited to our city, I co-authored an article on the importance of immigrant protections with fellow champion Greg Casar from Austin.

Denver may be my first love, but it isn’t the only city I care about. The challenges and opportunities cities face are too big to tackle alone, which is why I learn from and share with others across the country. And that’s why I need your help to win this election.

Forward, Together.

Homelessness: The Facts & Plan No One in 300 Debate is Talking About

About four or five times per week, I get to hear the debate about Initiative 300, which would create a right to camp in any publicly available space. They finish and then I’m given one minute to describe a plan to end homelessness during a candidate forum on a range of issues. Unless you’ve attended … Continued

Can Electeds be Both Bold and Responsive

Ok, so you know about my record on housing, protecting our climate, inclusivity, and more. And now you know all about my family, our obsession with composting, and our dogs. But elections are about more than personalities and policies. They’re also about leadership and judgment. One of my opponents recently asked me which was harder, running for office or serving? No contest: … Continued
